after the ambush fbi agents leading the investigation have yet to step foot in benghazi. we told you that was the case on friday, it remains the case today. they have not even secured the crime scene, we're told. that has got the mother of former navy seal tyrone woods speaking out. she is demanding faster action against those who murdered her son. trace gallagher is live with an update. trace? >> reporter: and i think it's important to note, megyn, that the mother of tyrone woods does not appear to be a critic of the administration. in fact, during that very emotional ceremony where her son's remains were brought back to the united states she said, and i'm quoting, that the president, the vice president and the secretary of state were wonderful, that they consoled her and that they were genuinely sad for her loss. but the mom is baffled as to why the fbi is not on scene investigating. on her facebook post last week she wrote, and i'm quoting: don't want to ever politicize the loss of my son in libya, but it has been 16 days, and the fbi has yet to get to benghazi to begin their inve
-- spblt for three weeks later. 20 days past the september 11th attacks and fbi isn't in benghazi, they're in tripoli, for security reasons they say, they say that the libyan security forces aren't providing them with security and some sort of visa problem. this is unheard of. so, senator bob corker and joe lieberman among others, they want answers from clapper about why it's happening. >> dave: to the point at that tony schaeffer made on our program yesterday, he's worked with the fbi, some of the toughest and highly technically trained individuals on the planet. comfortable going into hostile zones like benghazi, it must not be an internal reason, it must be someone else they can't go in. >> clayton: bee seeds the tactffac tactffac fact-- besides the fact that libya is a free country and not the hot son that-- as it's unfolding and discussions about james clapper on the show this morning, who is james clapper we'll taking a look at his record. he made headlines in 2010 when asked about that london terrorist attack by diane sawyer and appeared he didn't know what had happened or unfold
information we have at present. first of all, there's an fbi investigation that's ongoing. and we look to that investigation to give us the definitive word as to what transpyred. but putting together the best information we have available to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi in fact was initially a spontaneous reaction to what transpired hours before in cairo, almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo which were prompted of course by the video. >> there was a caveat there. she said the fbi was still investigating. but the thought was it was a spontaneous reaction. a couple of days before that, the libyan president said, no, in fact, al qaeda was behind this attack. and then days later, after ambassador rice is on this program and other programs, the president's spokesman jay carney says this. it is, i think, self-evident that what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack. well, if it was self-evident, why didn't the president call this exactly what it was, an act of terror on the anniversary of 9/11? >> well, this is an eve

director of national intelligence to explain why the fbi has want been able to make it in to benghazi safely. >> reporter: the fbi is worried about security in benghazi, conducting their investigation and interviews in tripoli, 400 mile away from the scene of the attack. senator bob corker of the senate foreign relations committee wants to know why. he fired off a letter to james clapper, demanding answer, saying, in part, just ab days ago, the administration apparently judged it was appropriate for our consulate to be lightly guarded and it was safe for our embassador -- ambationz dorto come through the city with a small security de tail. what has changed in libya in such a short time that even fbi agents, our most elite personnel cannot safely enter the city? the consulate didn't have the standard marine guard. there are calls for the resignation of u.n. bambass dorsusan rice who, said that it appeared to be a spontaneous uprising against an anti-muslim video. >> five days went by. we have reports that intelligence people knew within 24 hours that this was a terror attack, yet, the

. >> senior correspondent john miller joins us now. what's going on. why can't the fbi get in there and do what they were sent there to do? >> the security situation on the ground there is so brittle that the libyan government is very reluctant to have a team of a couple of dozen fbi people going to benghazi, when the only people they could get to protect them are militias, and they know that the crime scene is long ago compromised, trampled through. it may or may not yield anything terribly important and if it does, if will yield it later. it is a difficult situation. >> any more information on the question of how much this may have been a preplanned attack? >> there is. and i think you have kind of put your thumb on the pulse of the problem there. in -- in these groups, we look for -- we want a wiring diagram, an organized picture, with al qaeda who ordered it. this group assisted. the problem is, the lines have blurred between these groups and their members. an sawar sharia are popping up in all of these countries. not al qaeda, but they are reading from the al qaeda narrative and they

's an fbi investigation which is ongoing and we look to that investigation to give us the definitive word as to what transpired. putting together the best information we have available to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. >> p.j., did she say too much there? >> i mean, those were evidently some talking points that had come out of the intelligence community. i think today the tilt is more towards this was planned attack. there had been some milling around near the embassy -- near the consulate beforehand. we obviously know more today than we did and have a greater perspective today now that we have people back, interviewing them and multiple investigations going on as susan rice said. but, you know, we still don't have the definitive view on what exactly happened and what we should do about it. >> i want to open this up to our panel here. in terms of how this plays out on the campaign trail, the general thinking is foreign policy isn't going to be an issue at t
of f.b.i. experts? >> yeah. at a time when most americans would want to rally, instead, we've had this bizarre response, which only leads me to believe either number one, there was gross negligence or imcompetence involved. or this administration doesn't want all of us to realize that libya may now be a failed state if the f.b.i. agents who are well trained can't even make it into benghazi. when you look at that narrative, with the backdrop of in afghanistan we have afghans that we are partnering with killing americans. we have now iranians flying in iraqi air space over iraq to syria to deliver arms. you have a situation where iran now believes we're a nation in decline and therefore, they're going ahead with uranium enrichment. you look at russia who apparently is waiting until after this election to start talking about watering down our missile defense. this administration has weakened our nation tremendously through the huge debts we've run up over the last three or four years. and the fact is, i don't know whether it's that narrative they're trying to stay away from or there

in fbi agents to investigate because they say benghazi is unstable. if that's the case, then where was the security before the attack? >> there are a lot of republican complaints in terms of liberal bias about this media campaign. some more credible than others. the president has mostly been covered as a candidate rather than as an incumbent whose record needs to be scrutinized. this is an area where there are questions, dealing with security overseas and also what are our goals in libya and are they being achieved in the right way? that line of argument and attack with press scrutiny and mitt romney making the case should be part of the debate. and i think will be because this story does have a lot of unanswered questions. >> mika, as we've been saying for some time both on and off the air, if the president was george w. bush and he had said that the middle east going up in flames was a, quote, bump in the road, george w. bush would have been absolutely skewered by the press. >> at the same time, is it fair to say that the romney campaign and mitt romney himself have seized upon t
. the auction house and museum have notified the f.b.i. who are investigate it, but haven't said whether the buyer will get their $7 back. >> was it part of thomas crown? you go to all this trouble to rob a piece of art and it ends up in a garage sale. why the effort? >> if you're listening stuck in traffic, you have our sympathies. in brazil, the average traffic jam extends for a total of 112 miles, and that is on a good day. a bad day can see traffic jams up to 183 miles and commutes of more than two hours each way. one resident said it was like a sea of cars. though it's a good way to meet people, because she met her husband in a traffic jam. >> wow. i got to say because the quality of life in south hollow is otherwise so wonderful. >> really, yeah. there you go, that's it. >> that's it? that's the full court press. >> it's yours now buddy. >> it's not the same without dan here making us all uncomfortable. thank you so much. that's brilliant. carl, welcome to the show. always a pleasure to have you here. obviously the big story this week is the first obama-romney debate. i'm very exci
's a difficult region. the main concern i have, frankly, is that we still may not have good access of our fbi agents and other investigators to the site. i don't think when you say there's been a long delay in being forthcoming, i don't think there's been a delay in being forthcoming. i think the administration has shared information the best that they had at the time. we continue to try to learn just what parts of this were spontaneous and what parts of this was preplanned. was this a situation where al qaeda or al qaeda affiliated organizations and militias in libya were looking for the right opportunity and took it when it presented itself, or were the demonstrations themselves part of the planning? so we're still trying to get the answers to those questions. but, again, i think our ambassador, the intelligence community and others have been very careful to caution, look, we want to give you the information as we get it. but you have to know this could change because our information is still coming in. >> you know, what i don't understand about this story is there seems to be a suggestion
if the fbi agents who are well-trained can't even make it into benghazi. >> with growing calls for ambassador susan rice resign over her comments that benghazi was a demonstration spun out of control had strong defense this weekend by senior obama cam main advisor. >> i was shocked to see representative king attack ambassador rice because she was acting on the intelligence given her to the intelligence community. to say she should resign, she is one of the most remarkable splendid public servants that is thoroughly irresponsible. >> reporter: two final observations about axelrod's comments. number one, susan rice went way beyond the assessment here given by the director of national intelligence and number two, what we're going to pursue today is the timing. when the director of national intelligence, that office, changed its assessment to terrorism. was it before the statements of susan rise on the 16th, or was it sometime afterwards, gregg? gregg: catherine, jenna. jenna: i want to ask you a quick question because we're following the libya story throughout the day. as you said so many questi

to have the information. there is investigation by the fbi as to what happened in benghazi. and there's a review answering some of the questions asked. but how can you ask the secretary to come before the information is known? it's also important to note that the republican appropriation in congress gave the administration $300 million less than it asked for for the state department including funding for security. >> are you suggesting that there was a financial aspect to what happened in benghazi, libya? that the u.s. didn't have enough money to protect american diplomats? >> no. what i'm saying is congress has the right of oversight, but it also has the power of the purse. so as it looks to what the fundamentals are here, we have to know -- nobody's going to know by next week, but we have to have a full investigation and accountability for it. but we also have to look to ourselves in terms of that funding question, $300 million less than the administration asked for. >> and we know the state department, the secretary has asked thomas pickering to launch this full scale investigation
